Jolly Holiday Sale!

Oh my goodness! Did you guys have an awesome holiday? We definitely got stuffed and had good times with family. Even managed to see a movie--Murder on the Orient Express. It got medium reviews so we went with medium expectations and therefore enjoyed it well enough. :) We also watched The Force Awakens at home so that we'd be ready for The Last Jedi when it came out. I love it when we all watch movies together. It doesn't happen very often where everyone is together. We also celebrated Zach's birthday while he and his wife were down from Idaho. He and [...]

Our Diabetic Cat

  Say hello to Sam. Sam is our cat of eight years come this February. He has what I'd consider a stereotypical cat personality in that he wants your affection on his terms. He may not be the cuddly creature that Tito is (Jordan's kitty), but he still loves you...in his own way. For the past little while we've noticed a difference in him. He drinks and pees a lot and has lost weight. Still eats though. So we finally took him to the vet since it seemed like it wasn't changing. And we found out, Sam is diabetic. wow. [...]

A Fall Moment

If there's one thing you gotta do in the fall, it's head for the hills....uh...mountains. The changing scenery and colors is always breathtaking. One of the popular spots to do that is the Alpine Loop. It's been tugging at me to do for the past couple weeks and finally yesterday, my bestie and Jordan took a quick little adventure up the American Fork Canyon side, stopping for a small 'hike' along the Timpanooeke Trail and at our usual digs, a campground up the canyon. We didn't have a lot of time, but my soul just needed to get out and [...]

Quiet.

Sorry I've been a little MIA. We've had a bit of a rough time this past week. Not a story I care to share, but know that we are all well. The week just really sucked and it's now hard to even want to get into the swing of things. One more of those 'weird' things to add for this year. I'm sooo done. This was the final straw for me. Pretty much more than I can handle.     The debate is to work or just do more of this with Jordan's cute baby kitty, Tito (means 'giant' in [...]

And the winner is….

...but first...photo.   I just hate posting without a photo. And since Sunday kind of got away from me for announcing a winner, I thought I'd share a little of what distracted me during the day. So this was actually morning, but Sunday was an absolutely beautiful day! It started off by looking out my window to see the gorgeous morning light and shadows on the neighbor's snowball bush--that happens to hang over onto our side of the fence. ;) Add a little class prep for church, church, making BBQ chicken sandwiches (these turned out really good) and cabbage (ramen) [...]

Time To Get Busy

  I feel like I've been in bed or really just out of it for way too long. And when I say out of it, my brain is really out of it. The lack of iron--or oxygen moving in my body--must affect my brain as well. It takes a lot for me to focus and think straight. Now the mess in my studio is completely out of control and all I have wanted to do was get it organized again. And today, I'm completely motivated to get this space under control!     Is it just me? Please tell me [...]

I Am Iron Man.

  This song has been stuck in my head for daaaaaays. A couple weeks ago I'd shared  here on the blog that I'd been having health some issues. The kind that seem to happen when a woman turns 50 or so. As a result I became severely anemic--like transfusion or infusion bound. But they preferred to try treating it with iron pills first. I'd had blood work done before I went to Kauai and didn't get the results until a couple days before we were to come home. At that point I wasn't ready to start taking iron, knowing that [...]

Death and Taxes

  As I was laying in bed and finishing Survivor last night (ohhh Malcom!), all I could think of was how my day felt like the phrase, death and taxes. I'm not dying any time soon (or so I hope), but as I shared on social media yesterday, I had quite an episode when having some blood drawn for tests. I think I scared the poor nurse to death as she went to get me some water because I wasn't feeling well and she came back to find me kneeling with my head on my hands on the floor, doing my best not [...]

Let’s Get This Party Started!

Six years ago today I had a new baby...of the digital kind. I decided to take the plunge into the wonderful world of self-employment, creativity and endless possibilities and Kerri Bradford Studio was born Today we celebrate! And it's doubly celebratory for me because....helllooooo....the store is back to working and you can access your classes! That all came to fruition about midnight last night. I thought I was going to have to do a 'belated' birthday party. (Sidenote: Kudos to my new web guy. He needs a cape because he's my hero.) But hooray! It's 'my' birthday and I can have a [...]
